Common Grounds Cinematic Conversations: The Enduring Legacy of the Plantation
November 13, 2021 @ 12:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Explore resistance to change in social and political hierarchies of the U.S. through three films—including “Antebellum”(2020)—a panel discussion, and community conversations.
This event—a film festival featuring “Antebellum,” “Sankofa,” and “Harriett”– asks the public to consider how much the United States has changed in the 400 years since the arrival of the first enslaved Africans and how plantation-derived politics continue to impact social and political institutions. Join panelists and fellow moviegoers to wrestle with how the remnants of plantation politics contribute to modern anti-Black perceptions.
Attendees are welcome to come to whichever portions of the event appeal to them.
